Three Kingdoms: Fate of the Dragon (or simply Fate of the Dragon for short in the U.S. version) is a RTS developed by Overmax Studios, (Now known as Object Software) and published in 2001 for PC. It is based on the historical background of the epic Romance of the Three Kingdoms.
In 2002, the game originally saw an expansion pack/sequel in the form of Dragon Throne: Battle of Red Cliffs, and was set to get a true successor the following year titled, “Fate of the Dragon II“. While a number of screenshots were released, very little about the game was known outside of China, and little to no official announcement or press coverage was given.
According to recent research, and a post on Chinese forum hupu.com, the sequel never saw the light of day, and was indeed cancelled around 80% development. In 2004, the game’s engine and graphics were reused for the still ongoing Chinese exclusive MMO: Fate Online, also known as Fate of the Dragon Online, and Dragon Throne Online. Currently the game has no localization outside of mainland China.
